It’s unknown if the Cougar Tail was a re-created wrapper or a legitimate package from a donut sold at LaVell Edwards Stadium on BYU’s campus in Provo.
Regardless, the Flames celebrated their big blowout victory with the donut and even posed for pictures with it.

The loss was the BYU’s third straight defeat and fourth of the season. For Liberty, it was their seventh win of the season and improved the Flames’ record to 7-1. Liberty called the result a win that was “50 years in the making.” For the Cougars, it was a night to forget. BYU last experienced four losses in a season in 2019, when the Cougars finished their campaign with a 7-6 record.
With the loss, the Cougars dropped to a 4-4 record this season, including 1-2 on the road. BYU will look to secure bowl eligibility by winning two of its final four games.
